Drone photography is the newest Aerial form of photography. As long as you can get your photo from 400 feet or less, this is the best way to capture your property. If you have a massive location needing you to be 500 feet or better in height, you need a helicopter or plane to get those shots.
While showing the Park Springs community near Stone Mountain, this wasn’t the only reason to shoot photos from a drone.
Showing the lake in the middle of the community was also important. From the air, you get a great perspective.
Right next to the property is also a golf course. This is impossible to show from the ground regarding the retirement community.
While I was flying the drone and showing the client the images, they commented that you see how Atlanta is the City of Trees from the air.
Atlanta, Georgia, has a reputation as the “city in a forest” due to its abundance of trees, uncommon among major cities. Tree coverage was estimated at 47.9% for 2008 in a 2014 study.
